Dangers of Doing Home Generator Installation
There are a number of reasons that we will examine further about why it’s necessary to hire Authorized Service Dealer like FPS. But the primary and most important reason is your safety. The obvious things to watch out for are carbon monoxide poisoning, fire and electric shock/electrocution. If you’re lucky the CO poisoning probably wouldn’t get you, but the electrical shock and fire is a most certain possibility without using a qualified technician for your new generator installation.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Home Generator Installation
Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless, and it’s produced by the generator’s exhaust. It can be extremely hazardous or even life-threatening if your new home generator isn’t hooked up properly, or if the unit is hooked up in the wrong place on the property. And although most carbon monoxide poisoning deaths result from the use of indoor generators, hiring a professional FPS will guarantee your family’s safety from CO poisoning.
Fire, Electrocution and Home Generator Installation
There are plenty of nightmare scenarios you can come up with regarding fire and electrocution, which is another important reason to hire a pro from FPS to come out and do the installation.
Your unit should be placed outdoors, inside a protective enclosure where sufficient air for cooling and ventilation is available in an unobstructed manner. The generator should be placed on a level surface, which is non-combustible and non-conducting, a little above ground level to prevent contact from rising water levels. If water comes into contact with the unit, there could be trouble. SHOCK!
